Passion for Promarkers - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Good morning, Blogger buddies! We're sliding towards the end of November which can only mean one thing...it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...and this is the theme for our challenge this week over at Passion for Promarkers.  I am in the hostess chair, so will be visiting all of your blogs to see what fabulous creations you come up with for my theme!
We're being sponsored by the fabulous Digistamp Boutique who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher to their online store...

Don't forget, to be in with a chance of winning the prize, you MUST use your Winsor & Newton/Letraset products and follow the challenge theme...
...Once again, we were given the opportunity to choose an image to play with and I went for Partridge in a Pear Tree.  I decided to make something other than a card and went for a pretty Christmas wall hanging. I printed the partridge onto the background, plus a second image to decoupage the layers.  I coloured my image with Pro/Flexmarkers and was really pleased with how the pears turned out. I chopped up a couple of gold glittered snowflake decorations and glued around the edge, then added some small gold pearls and diamantes for a bit more bling. I finished off with a 'handmade with love' charm around the bird's neck and a coordinating ribbon to hang.
I hope you can find the time to join in with my challenge this week and look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations. Don't forget to pop over and leave my teamies some love for their amazing inspiration this week...

Passion for Promarkers - Use your Die Cuts...

Good morning, Blogger buddies! It's Tuesday, so you know what that means, don't you?...yep, that's right!...it's time for a brand new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers...and they don't get much easier than this! The lovely Julie is in the hostess chair and she's given us a fabulously easy theme of 'Use your Die Cuts' - so no excuse not to join in!  We're being sponsored by the wonderful Alicia Bel who is kindly offering one lucky winner a €10.00 voucher to their store...how cool is that?!
We were given the choice of an image to work with and I went with something a little different - Flamingo...I just love the sentiments that tell people to be themselves, like be a 'Unicorn in a field of horses', or in this case, 'Be a Flamingo in a flock of pigeons'...we all tend to try and fit in with others and society as a whole, but sometimes it's good to embrace our uniqueness and individuality!
I love all the pink tones on this card and the layout is a fab one that I found on Pinterest, plus I had to add in a couple of clouds to the mix...just because I could?!  The papers are a mix from A Year in Cards, Animal Antics and Say it with Flowers and I used plenty different die cuts to fit the theme...
I hope you can join in with our fun challenge this week...I am busy making for my upcoming Craft Fair at The Lodge, Llanrhaeadr next month...fingers crossed it will be a good weekend as my front room is getting full of crafty makes...not to mention the living room window sill...and sideboard! I'm going to have to look at putting them all in a box, or boxes...but then it's WHERE TO PUT THE BOX?! 
Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday, whatever you're doing - I should be doing washing and ironing...shoulda, woulda, coulda?!
